As knitters, we know that our time with yarn and needles = relaxation. No need for a study to tell us that. (Come on. Even my pets have deduced that knitting chills me out and improves my mood.) But if the muggles want to study the connection, who am I to object?
Turns out, they discovered something kind of awesome: Knitting can actually change your genes.
Knit on, my friends, in good health and with a clear conscience! And if you’re so inspired, knit a neuron or two.
